Crickets can live up to a year or longer, but typically only survive a single winter. The insects are affected by temperature fluctuations and tend to be most active on warmer evenings, during which they chirp louder and more rapidly. Crickets are omnivorous and consume varied diets of insects, seeds, leaves, animal carcasses and fruits.
